The exegesis product in Indonesia and its scientific development have not ever been lasted. An effort to find out method, approach, and model of study has been running. The additional sciences beside the basic science (`ulûm al- Qur’ân) in interpreting the Qur’an such as hermeneutic, linguistics, semantics, and semiotics are used by Qur’anic commentators in Indonesia. The present paper will focus on studying the development of exegesis study in reformation era through intellectual history approach. The exegesis type in reformation era as a thought product is positioned as other thought product which has relative, non-absolute, and non-sacred. It is because making a sacred matter will keep a check on a freedom and creativity to find out the holy book massage based on dynamic of life. Hence, the old exegesis book probably tends to be criticized by commentators in reformation era in accordance with the current need. In brief, new purpose of exegesis development in reformation era in Indonesia tends to use thematic-collective, integrative, and multi-dimension method.
